posted on by Karen Ressler
Viz Media's Shojo Beat imprint announced at its Otakon panel on Saturday that it has licensed Keiko Ishihara's The Heiress and the Chauffeur (Ojō-sama no Untenshu) manga. The first volume will be available in May.
The story takes place in the Taishō era, at a girl's school where one young lady, Sayaka, earns the envy of all the other girls. She wears a red ribbon to mark her the top student at school. She is always followed by a chauffeur, an employee of her family. The rumor among the students is that the two are in love.
Ishihara began the manga in Hakusensha's LaLa DX magazine in 2010. Hakusensha published the series in two compiled volumes.
Ishihara has since begun the fantasy manga Strange Dragon in Hakusensha's LaLa magazine in 2013. She ended the series in February.
